Dryer Duct Pumpkin

When I first seen this I had to do a double take because it was the most unique thing I had seen in a long time! 

I just had to have one and ran out that night to buy the supplies to make them. 

To start you need this

Just plain old dryer duct!!

Stretch it out and glue it like this

Then take it outside and put a few coats of spray paint on it. I didn't prime mine and I thought it turned out pretty cool. 

I used 3-4 cinnamon sticks glued together for the stem and to decorate the top I used left over leaves and raffia from my Wreath project.

They were super easy to make and look so unique. 
I bought my dryer duct from WalMart for about $13.00 and it made 3. 

Give it a try!


  1. That is so neat Aleisha....I want to make some too..what kind of paint did you use? just any spray paint & what colors did you use? They are so shinny....I love your interesting.......xoxox

  2. Omg Aleisha , I am going have to try this it looks so clue , and easy!!! was it easy?? anyways take care my crafty friend!

  3. I used spray paint that I bought at walmart. Just picked up the cheapest bright orange I could find. Also picked up a nice red and black. I think the reason they turned out so shiny was because the dryer vent I bought was was a very shiny silver and because I didn't prime it it came through. I did 2 coats on each one so I didn't over do it. I also did mine out in the garage where it was a bit colder so I'm not sure if that played into it or not. Try it, it's so much fun! The leaves I used were the ones from the dollar store and I used some craft wire from there too. Send me a pic when you make one :) Glad you are enjoying my blog!
